Timeshare Resort Scams Help

What are timeshare resort scams? How do resort scams affect you as a consumer? Are you a victim of a timeshare resort scam? What rights do you have as a consumer if you believe you are a victim of a timeshare resort scam? Consumers are asking themselves these questions daily, before, and after they have purchased a timeshare from a resort. Many of these consumers do not have any idea that they are victims until they have indeed purchased.

Timeshare Resort scams are any sort of misrepresentation, or deceptive sales practices that happen to consumers when they buy a timeshare. If you purchased a timeshare in the past ten years, odds are you are a victim. Many timeshare owners are unaware they are actually a victim, until they start to use their timeshare. Generally first year of use on any new purchase is the following year, unless it is a bi-annual, or tri-annual contract. So some consumers might not know for two, or three years. By this time the stated rescission period in the contract is obviously over, and they are left thinking they cannot get out of the contract.

When first finding out that you are a victim of a resort scam, you need to assess all the facts form your purchase. These facts are very important, they will help you cancel a fraudulent contract, and possibly get your money back. You have rights as a consumer, contrary to what the resort staff tells you. Most of the time, consumers find these facts out when they call the resort, and try to use the timeshare.

The resorts first job, when you find these facts out, is to spin you around, and make it seem like you are the one who is in the wrong. Resorts with use any means necessary to keep you in your timeshare, including threats of legal action, if YOU do not continue to pay for the timeshare. This in the timeshare cancellation industry, we call scare tactics. The resort wants to scare you into submission.

Why the sudden increase in dissatisfied consumers? The answers lie with the resorts themselves. Due to the poor economy and the decrease in real estate value the resorts are training their sales staff to sell BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!

We have seen countless consumers pay these astronomical amounts of money to give back their timeshares.

Timeshare-Answers Scams-Fraud-Complaints

Recently, the Attorney General office in Florida put out a press release on how to protect you from these timeshare scams. Timeshare-Answers is a professional consumer advocacy company who has helped thousands of timeshare owners with these types of complaints, and has used consumer’s complaints to get their contracts cancelled. Here is some helpful information from the AG OFFICE we would like to share with consumers.

“How to Protect Yourself: Timeshare Sales & Resales

Source: The Florida Attorney General’s Office”

Vacation timeshares give you the right to use a vacation home for a limited, pre-planned period. Timeshare scams occur both on the front-end, the time of the original purchase, and at the back-end, when you try to resell the timeshare. Victims of timeshare sales companies are contacted either over the phone or are mailed a postcard asking the victim to call a toll-free phone number. Before you decide to either purchase or resell a timeshare, consider the following:

Be Wary Of The Hard Sales Pitch? When it comes to purchasing a new timeshare, the salesman may try to give you the impression that the papers have to be signed that same day. Remember that you always have the right to leave the sales office, and come back later. Read your contract to determine what cancellation rights you have after you have signed the papers. Before buying a timeshare, you should consider whether you will want to return to the same vacation spot each year. Remember that once you buy it, you may not be able to sell it due to a depressed resale market.

Be Wary Of Too-Good-To-Be-True Claims When It Comes To Resales? The company’s salespeople are likely to claim that the market in the area where your resort is located is “hot” and that they are being overwhelmed with buyer requests for your resort. In some cases, the salespeople may even tell you that they have a buyer waiting in the wings who wants to buy your timeshare. Be skeptical of these types of claims. Remember the timeshare market is not “hot” and it is unlikely that there is a buyer ready and willing to buy your timeshare.

Question Why You Have To Pay The Fee Up Front? Most resale companies require you to pay a $300-500 advance-listing fee, before the sale of your timeshare can take place. In a typical real estate transaction the fee is paid from the proceeds of the sale, at the time of the sale. You may want to opt for a company, which will wait for its fee until the sale goes through. You should also find out if the salespeople are licensed real estate brokers and whether there are any complaints lodged against the broker.

Consider Other Options When It Comes To Resale? You may want to try selling your timeshare “by owner”, by placing an advertisement in a newsletter or magazine read by potential timeshare buyers. Or you may want to list your timeshare with a licensed real estate broker in the area where your resort is located. As an alternative, you could contract with a company, which allows you to exchange your timeshare for a unit in a different area.”

This is when the uneasy feeling becomes flu like sickness that over takes their entire body.

Timeshare scams or prevalent at all the major timeshare companies, they actually spend millions of dollars every year on how to deceive you into buying a timeshare.

They are usually kind, well mannered and dressed people who you would never think would lie to your face.
